I do like the technology it is uses but love would be a bit of a stretch.

A proper complete restoration is not in the cards as the decals are destroyed and replacements are unobtanium. The poper pieces parts would also be extremely expensive if one could collect them. Upgrading it to newer components is a thought. However a high end carbon crank set and new bottom bracket would cost almost a third of the price of the bafang mid drive. The mid drive and a small removable battery on the one of the water bottle mounts might make for a very aesthetically pleasing appearance. My other thought is that using a Bafang mid drive would reduce the danger of damaging those decades old aluminum dropouts.
